FIT Oral History: Lauren Pomerantz
DATE INTERVIEWED: circa 1980s
SUMMARY: Mildred Finger interviews Lauren Pomerantz about her time at Leslie Fay where she served as the Executive Vice President for 18 years and served on their Board of Directors, and her relationship with the Pomerantz family.
Leslie Fay was founded around 1938, incorporated in 1959, became a public company in 1967, and became "private" once again in 1982, at which time it was estimated to have achieved a volume of about $250,000,000. In 1993 the company experienced a severe accounting scandal, which forced it to declare bankruptcy. The company slowly recovered, however it never reached the same dominance as it previously had.
